We went to this restaurant on a recommendation but badly let down. We pre-booked a table but when we arrived there was no knowledge of the reservation. After half an hour waiting to try to order drinks, let alone dinner, and despite many calls to the staff we ended up walking out. Very very poor.

Went out of our way to try this place based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. Service was attentive and food came almost too fast, but not a worry as there was no rush. Went with the waiter's suggestion to order one standard pizza for two people and this was perfect. Room for dessert and still not too stuffed.... More

Was introduced by hotel concierge that this place has good pizza, pasta, meat, and very good selection of cheese, so we tried. The waiter was so impatient in explaining the pasta varieties in english as we didn't speak italiano. Even when explaining which wine is full bodied the waiter was very impatient. Short, curt and be gone if its possible.... More

We were staying at the Valadier and decided to have a bottle of wine here. The service was lovely, they remembered us and cracked jokes with us. Brought us delicious appetizers while we drank the wine. I recommend it here.

We had a meal here on our last night in Rome and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice meal out!

Great lasagne al forno. Prices are mid-high, but if you want to eat well, here you must pay. Is difficult to find a restaurant to have a great meal in Rome. You won't regret eating in this restaurant, well maybe only in the amount of food served.

Excellent food, prices I found super fair considering the location. Portions are generous. The cheese plate is enough for two. We had pasta, pizza, desert. All perfect. And... the waiters in Rome have quite a bad image if being rude, but here they were outstanding and also took good care of our little 3 years old.
